(Didn’t happen today but last week) Because of COVID I do all my shopping online. I have two very old cats (19YO and 20YO) and I needed a special comb to help them with grooming. I also wanted to get them some treats and special feed. I put everything in my basket of the online pet store and get a notification “Order for €3,95 more and get free shipment”. I’m thinking “it would be nice to order some bird seed! My daughter and I (she’s 3YO) can feed the birds on our walks. That way she has a ‘goal’ and won’t get bored!” Congratulating myself on this brilliant idea I look up birdseed for the birds most common in my area. I feel like a great mother and a true animal lover! There’s different sizes and I notice the biggest size is a lot cheaper per KG than the smaller ones. Anticipating on a lot of wintery walks I order the biggest one.
A few days later the postman arrives. WITH A HANDTRUCK! I already forgot I also ordered birdseed so I say: “That can’t be for me!” But it is...
And that’s how we ended up with 11 KG of birdseed. Luckily my daughter loves it. I also donated 2 KG to her nursery school so they can make bird feeders.
TL;DR wanted to make the minimum amount for free shipping, didn’t look carefully and ended op with 11 KG of birdseed.
EDIT: Thank you so much for your replies and awards! I’ll try to read them all. Some people asked if this was a repost or a stolen story. I swear it isn’t but thank you for the link because I feel a bit less stupid now. Other people asked how much it was. A 2 KG bag was 3,95 but then I saw a 11 KG bag was 12,49. My mind went: “That’s much cheaper!” Without really registering how much 11 KG was. Hence the FU. My mailman is a small, skinny guy, they packed it in a box with the stuff for my cats and he has to walk all the way to the elevator and then quite a bit in my hallway so I think that’s why he used the handtruck.
We don't make cars, or high tech electronics, or pharmaceuticals, or vaccines, or anything advanced at all.
The highest market cap stocks are all banks.
Our biggest economic sectors are... commodities. Like a third world country or something. Imagine if we weren't adjacent to the USA. Our economy would like Portugal or something.
I come from a culture where it’s largely hidden away. That can be a bit scary.
Not to make it a celebratory thing in a creepy way like “now you’re ready to have a child. Now you’re an adult”
Just in a way that’s like “this is a scary change and the hormonal and physical changes can be difficult but we’re here for you and it’s normal.”
Steve Nash has exclaimed "This is not basketball" after watching Trae get yet another 3 free throw attempts after initiating contact with his defender by suddenly stopping and lunging backwards.
This had me interested - Assuming most fans prefer buckets to free throws, who are the players who get the most buckets compared to free throws attempts (FTA), making for a more compelling game?
I've used Basketball Reference to export 270 players stats who have made at least 20 field goals, and of 125 players who have made at least 50 field goals.
For the "worst offender" I've used the full 270 players pool. For the "Least Annoying"(?) I've used the smaller pool, as 50 makes seemed like a good cutoff to reduce noise (as many of the low-FGM players have 0 or very few free throws attempts).
I'm pretty skeptical that the "Least Annoying" list would be really the most entertaining players - after all, stars get a lot of free throws because they really do get fouled. I do however expect chronic foul drawers that rely mostly on free throws to top the list and match our sense of them being annoying to watch.
My emphasis was on free throw attempts and not makes, so I won't penalize good free throw shooters, and because a missed one and a made one takes the same amount of time and is just as annoying.
First, let's have a look at the players with at least 50 makes. Who tops the least for the best FTA:FGM ratio? League average is about slightly above 0.5.
Harris and Maxey are the least annoying \ most disrespected (I guess it depends on your perspective) players in the league. It's not unexpected to find a shooter like Harris on top since he make... keep reading on reddit ➡
